On a day-to-day basis I use several online tools that help me stay organised, keep in touch with my clients and ensure communications stay up & running on a daily basis.
Trello is a free-to-use kanban board which can be used to stay organised. It works off creating lists of project statuses and dragging tasks written on cards between each list. The lists I created for my business are: Leads, Opps, Landed, To Do, Awaiting Feedback, Awaiting More Info, Meeting Set Up, Invoiced, Paid and Completed.
Examples of how Trello can be used include:
Slack is a professional & secure instant messaging programme which can be launched in both your browser and as desktop & mobile apps. Using slack allows you to create a number of chats to discuss specific subject matters. I use Slack to communicate with clients as well as my external & seamless teams.
Google G-Suite offers so many services that I use on a daily basis and I can’t choose just one to talk about, so here goes…
Google Drive, Sheets & Docs: Google’s answers to Dropbox, Word & Excel are all included in the G-Suite package and I use all of them on a daily basis.
As the world turns more digital day by day, more & more meetings, networking events and conferences are moving online. I try to attend at least one of these online events once a week, and they often take place on Zoom – the online video conferencing tool.
Revolut is an online bank with no high street branches, therefore they have invested into their online platform to make it as easy to use & as useful as possible. I use Revolut for Business to manage my accounts, expenses, 3rd party applications and direct debits.
The five online applications above are an integral force that keep my business running smoothy, I would love to know what applications you use and why they help your business.
